In 1986, Michael Hardwick, a gay man, and his partner were arrested for making love in the privacy of their own home. The case was brought to the attention of a group of grass-roots attorneys who championed Michael's case through the Georgia court system. Ultimately, the sensational case was brought to the Supreme Court by none other than Lawrence Tribe, a famous and outspoken proponent for civil rights laws in the U.S. Through compelling eyewitness testimony, the author re-creates the dramatic events surrounding The Bowers v. Hardwick trial. Sodomy Rules: Bowers v. Hardwick is presented as part of Fresh Fruit Festival 2009.
